An interesting selection that proved that beers can take you on a wild and wonderful journey of taste in ways that you may have never thought of before. A subtle hint of cherry in this dark stout is sure to please the pallate.

Draft. Poured black with a nice tan head. Aroma and flavor were mildly tart cherry (more restrained than I thought it’d be), some chocolate, molasses, lots of sweet malt. Barrel aging adds lots of bourbon, some vanilla, a mild woodiness. Thick mouthfeel. Glad I got to try this.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2013 On tap at crunchy’s in east Lansing. I am not a huge fan of the original cherry stout. However, the BB fixes everything I don’t like about the original. The bourbon and vanilla tone down the super tart cherry flavor and sweeten up the malt. Delicious.

draft at beer fest. The BBL cuts down on the overpowering cherry but still not quite enough for my taste. NIce but nothing I need to chase after.

Smells of bourbon. Very little cherry but its there. Taste is good but a tad sweet. Glad I tried it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draught at Beer Trappe. Bourbon and cherry. The previous cherry is slightly muted but stands out in a bit of tart and fruit. Nice overall.

Sample at Jungle Jim’s Barrel Aged Tasting, on tap. Awesome vanilla and chocolate syrup aroma. Dark but still clear color. Nearly no head, but few dots of lace. Big bitter taste, pretty tart also. Bigger body, dry texture, light carbonation, little bite. Light / moderate cherry, some chocolate. Little bourbon boozy finish. Solid, tasty, bourbon barrel ale.

Damn was this good. Aroma was tart cherry, bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, and sex. Poured super black with some tan lacing. The tartness from the cherries is not lost at all with the chocolate and bourbon notes. Very well balanced with just the right amount of fruity esters and barrel aged qualities. Awesome brew.

Black, no head. Nose is bourbon, wet wood, tart cherry. Taste is big tart cherry, chocolate, light bourbon. Syrupy mouthfeel.

To finally try this beer... Snifter pour at Oblivion Taproom. The body is a deep murky brown with a chalky-tan head. It smelled like a cherry tootsie-roll pop in a box with wet pencils - THAT good. The taste was full of tart cherry, chocolate, lightly boozy bourbon and vanilla towards the finish. I do not regret saying that this beer sodomizes Black Note - WAY too much hype there.
